Students will study maps, learning how to read a map and organize a map book. From there the class will offer an overview of major world countries, their cultures and religions. We will discuss what it looks like to be a Christian in many of the different counties around the world. Students will explore a country answering a list of questions, drawing maps for the country and identifying important information about the country.
